With ice cold root beer floats and warm smiles, Mather-area classified employees of the Sacramento County Office of Education (SCOE) were honored at an afternoon reception on May 21. Members of the Superintendent's Cabinet served frozen treats for employees as a gesture of thanks and appreciation for the contributions of school and education employees.
In a message to SCOE's classified employees, County Superintendent David W. Gordon said, "On behalf of the Board of Education and the SCOE Cabinet, I would like to extend our warmest personal thanks to you for all of the contributions that you make as a valued member of our education team." The Superintendent also said, "Thanks to your hard work and dedication, we are making a real difference in the lives of our students and their families."
SCOE is one of 58 county offices of education in the State of California. It plays a vital role in providing technical assistance, curriculum and instructional support, staff development, legal and financial advice, and oversight to Sacramento County school districts.
Approximately 650 regular and more than 950 temporary and substitute SCOE staff work year-round providing services which complement and supplement those offered by public school districts in Sacramento County.
